A crash involving three cars closed two lanes of a Hampshire motorway this morning.

Police officers were called to reports of a pile-up involving three cars, a BMW 520 Sport, a Volkswagen Passat and a Ford Galaxy shortly after 7am.

The collision closed two lanes of the M3 between junction 14 and 13 on the northbound carriageway.

The closure caused traffic misery for drivers heading towards Winchester, with 45-minute delays backed up to the M27 reported in morning rush hour.

No injuries were reported, police say.

All lanes reopened just before 8.15am.
